Post can't export my display to another systems

I ma running Gentoo Linux in my Dell box. When I try to export my DISPLAY to another system it says:

$export DISPLAY="my_ip_address:0.0"
Error: Can't open display: my_ip_address:0.0

I added this host with xhost +remote_host

I deleted the no_listen tcp from my Xservers file.

Any ideas why I can't export my display to another system.

I apologize for posting this question here. I didn't know that this is to introduce ourselves.

Well, I am kind of new using Linux. I used to use another flavors of Unix.

I think that's it.
